Bette Midler 'Still Waiting' on Ryan Murphy's Call for GLEE Guest Role

Related: GLEE, Fox

Following Ryan Murphy's very-public announcement that he'd asked the acclaimed Bette Midler to guest on GLEE - it appears the series showrunner hasn't followed through.

"I don't know. (Ryan Murphy) never called me," Middler told Access Hollywood at Friday's press conference for her new movie with Billy Crystal, PARENTAL GUIDANCE. "He mentioned it, but... I'm still waiting for the call. But, it's fine!"

In a post on Twitter, Murphy revealed he had asked the legendary actress to guest star on the show at an event honoring Michael Kors. "I just asked the incredible Bette Midler to be on Glee in front of 1,000 people. I hope she says yes!"

He later announced, "Bette said yes! Amazing. I am plotting... who should she play?"

It seems that perhaps he Tweeted too soon.

Originally, Midler suggested that she might want to portray the grandmother of Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry. In a series of posts, she shared, "So many fantastic people ... Wonderful speeches. Big thanks to everyone who kept me from falling off those heels!! And from the stage, Ryan Murphy invited me to guest on Glee! I should get out more!! Ok... I have one vote for Rachel's grandmother... hmmmm. I'm thinking, I'm thinking!!"

On Friday, however, she said she'd like to play a character reminiscent of Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester.
